Self-adhesive Wound Dressing The sheer number of dressings available makes choosing the correct dressing for clients a difficult proposition. Clinicians today have a much wider variety of products to choose from, which can lead to confusion and, sometimes, the wrong type of dressing for a particular wound. Self-adhesive Wound Dressing Knowing the types of dressings available, their uses, and when not to use a particular dressing may be one of the most difficult decisions in wound care management. Although there are hundreds of dressings to choose from, all dressings fall into a few select categories. Dressings within a particular category can then be chosen according to availability and familiarity. Let’s examine some of the wound dressing categories and when they should be used: Gauze Dressings Gauze dressings are made of woven or non-woven materials and come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. Use on: infected wounds, wounds that require packing, wounds that are draining, wounds requiring very frequent dressing changes. Pros: usually readily available; may be cheaper than other dressing types; can be used on virtually any type of wound. Cons: must be changed frequently, which may add to overall cost; may adhere to the wound bed; must often be combined with another dressing type; often not effective for moist wound healing. Transparent Films Transparent film dressings allow oxygen to penetrate through the dressing to the wound, while simultaneously allowing moisture vapor to be released. These dressings are generally composed of polyurethane material. Use on: partial-thickness wounds, donor sites, minor burns, stage I and stage II pressure ulcers. Pros: conforms to the wound well, can stay in place for up to one week; aids in autolytic debridement; prevents friction against the wound bed; does not need to be removed to visualize the wound; keeps the wound bed dry and prevents bacterial contamination of the wound. Cons: may stick to some wounds, not suitable for heavily draining wounds, may promote periwound maceration due to its occlusive nature. Foams Foam dressings are less apt to stick to delicate wound beds, are non-occlusive, and are composed of a film-coated gel or a polyurethane material that is hydrophilic in nature. Use on: pressure ulcers, minor burns, skin grafts, diabetic ulcers, donor sites, venous ulcers. Pros: comfortable, won’t adhere to the wound bed, and highly absorbent; allow for less frequent dressing changes, depending on the amount of wound exudate; come in many shapes and sizes. Cons: may require a secondary dressing to hold the foam in place; if not changed often enough may promote periwound maceration; cannot be used on wounds with eschar or wounds that are not draining; some foams may not be suitable for certain wounds, such as those that are infected or are tunneling.
